Response to This seems so trivial with all that is happening here lately....baby names anyone...m
I love that name, but who (over the age of 17) knew? I also like Elfride and Alberta, but I don't know whether I could name a girl such old-fashioned names. I had picked out my girl baby names before I found out I was only having boys: Helen Rose (Helen after my aunt, DH's cousin, my sister, and a friend; Rose after my MIL, though legally she doesn't have a middle name b/c her mother chose to omit it to avoid a family dispute) and Frances Lillian (Frances after my mother, an old friend, and DH's middle name is Francis; Lillian after my grandmother). Yeah, DH and I were estranged, but I tried to choose names that would draw from both sides of our family and friends so that if he chose to stay with us, as he seems to have done, he'd feel connected to my kids.
I think Kathryn Mira and Victoria Hope are lovely names. There will always be a lot of Kathryn's (and spelling variations). It's just a really ageless name, and I wouldn't worry about the impending British royal connection. Victoria? Another ageless name, and there will also always be a lot of them, too. But with the boys I changed my mind a bunch o' times before I got to delivery.
